BRIEF DESCRIPTION Family-initiated rapid response (FIRR) empowers families to express concern and seek care from specialized response teams. We studied FIRRs that occurred in a pediatric tertiary hospital over a 3-year period. The main aims were to describe the characteristics and outcomes of FIRRs and compare them with clinician-activated RRs (C-RRs). Of(More)
OBJECTIVE We studied rapid response events after acute clinical instability outside ICU settings in pediatric cardiac patients. Our objective was to describe the characteristics and outcomes after rapid response events in this high-risk cohort and elucidate the cardiac conditions and risk factors associated with worse outcomes. DESIGN A retrospective(More)
OBJECTIVES Sudden death is common in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and comparable lesions with parallel systemic and pulmonary circulation from a common ventricular chamber. It is hypothesized that unforeseen acute deterioration is preceded by subtle changes in physiologic dynamics before overt clinical extremis. Our objective was to develop(More)
Sign-out of patient data at change of shifts is vulnerable to errors that impact patient safety. Although sign-outs are complex in intensive care units (ICU), a paucity of studies exists evaluating optimal ICU sign-out. Our prospective interventional study investigated the use of a standard verbal template in a Pediatric ICU to improve the sign-out process.(More)
BACKGROUND Catheter-directed thrombolytic (CDT) therapies for severe pulmonary embolism (PE) have been shown to be effective and safe when compared with systemic thrombolysis in adults. Pediatric studies assessing efficacy and safety of CDT for PE are lacking. Hence, our aim was to review CDT as a therapy for pediatric PE. METHODS We retrospectively(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in acute resuscitation after cardiac arrest in pediatric patients with heart disease, with reference to patient selection and predictors of outcome. METHODS A retrospective medical record review was performed of all patients aged ≤21 years with heart disease who had undergone ECMO(More)
